What's the best place to get bulbs. I have 8 x T5s. Any suggestions on colors that are best for sps?

I agree. The more blue + the better IMO

I am due for my bulb change next month, I am contemplating either just going LED or just doing my bulbs, from what I have read though I would not personally go for the reefteks as they loose their spectrum and color within 6 months as apposed to the more expensive ATI bulbs

So tagging along to see what the others say

Lovely tank. I think I'll go for the same as you. Your tank looks great. My tank is shallow, so may look brighter. It's 35 high

Thanks, my tank is 60cm high so in your 35cm tank its going to be plenty of light.

Bulb choice will depend on personal preference and what you plan on achieving
Blue promotes colour, while white helps growth so you need to get a balance between the two
A tank with all blues will look a bit unnatural
